This we week we are talking to our sellers about why you should accept a VA loan offer! Don't listen to the rumors you've heard because using a VA buyer can, in fact, benefit you as the seller. For one, if the appraisal comes back lower than the listing price, the listing agent has the opportunity to prove the home's worth to the appraiser. Second, VA turnaround times are quick which allows you to sell your home faster than with other loans. Lastly, qualifications for a VA loan aren't as strict so this allows the buyer to afford more of a home since VA fees and interest rates are lower than other loans.
Tip of the Week: If you're thinking about buying, it's still a really good time! Rates are still fairly low but will rise by the end of the year. As well, homes are appreciating faster so you're also saving money by purchasing now. If you have any questions regarding buying or selling don't hesitate to call us at 719.822.1MOM!
Next Week: The numbers are in! We will be going over a quick market update for Colorado Springs for June.
